Samsung Epic 4G Gingerbread Update On Deck For The End Of The Month

Our friends at unwired are reporting by way of Sprintfeed that the update from Android 2.2 Froyo to Android 2.3 Gingerbread will happen by the end of the month for owners of the Samsung Epic 4G.

You may remember that the Samsung Epic 4G was the most appealing of the US Samsung Galaxy S variants last summer. With its slide out qwerty keyboard and WiMax (4G) radio it led the pack consisting of the Samsung Captivate (AT&T), Samsung Vibrant (T-Mobile) and the Samsung Fascinate (Verizon).  Samsung took quite a while to get the US Galaxy S devices updated to Froyo, just as they are taking a while to get the follow up to the Samsung Galaxy S, The Samsung Galaxy SII to launch in the United States.

More after the break

The Samsung Epic 4G had a little road block when it updated to Android 2.2. Sprint had delay after delay on the update and when it finally pushed out it was pulled back almost as fast.  Now that it seems all the Samsung Epic 4G’s are operating on Froyo it’s time to get ready for Gingerbread.

According to the report Gingerbread will grace the Samsung Epic 4G sometime between July 24th and the end of the month. So you only have a few weeks left to wait.

Once we know it’s rolling out we will report again!
